I was given the Yellow Fever shots while in the USAF 20 years ago without anything but the regular side effects, like most people (soreness, lethargy) but a good friend of mine spent about
a week in the hospital after his first shot with uncontrollable vomiting and sickness. It was terrible. But most people do fine!
It would probably be best if you are off any immunosuppressants for a good long time (maybe 4-6 mos.) before you get those shots, and maybe make sure your liver and kidney function tests are normal first, too.
Africa, how exciting! Best of luck to you!
